@ppb1701 @arstechnica Agreed. This move raises a lot of questions. 1) What's to stop regulation against other social media platforms in the US? We're already seeing some of that in various states. 2) Taking the high ground and then ordering TikTok to sell to an "American" company hardly serves credibility 3) It's partially PR, as you say, but it's also a below-the-belt move against Beijing.
